question now isn't how you reign in the nsa, the object, are they following the law, are they protecting civil ribber -- liberties that's what the oversight committees do. i work well in that function of oversight. the question is, what are the threats to the united states. who is using u.s. networks right now to steal intellectual property like the chinese, the russians and others. we've had cyberattacks against the united states this year from a nation state that exceeds over 300 different 'teams destroy some financial services networks that affects every american. we haven't talked about those things. we've got al qaeda spreading around the world in a way that is frightening, think about it. last year alone some 15,000 terrorist-related deaths. it is the nsa, the cia and others charge to make sure that zero of them happen here. zero. that's our standard. and so what we've asked hem to do is go out and collect information that protects america so every politician in washington, both republican and democrat are seized up by this hyper partisanship can't wait to put out a pres
